I want to start the New Year by creating a cute and lovable Valentine’s card using www.jessicalynnoriginal.com’s Brentwood Owl. This is a digital stamp that is available for download at Jessica’s online store. What is versatile about digi-stamp is the fact that you can print out a couple of images and adjust the size for your paper-crafting project.
I colored Brentwood using my Copic markers. I wanted to use my warm grays because the whole design I had in mind will be pastel colors. I think it worked out really well.
8 ½ x 5 ½ card stock in soft gray
5 ½ x 4 ¼ Designer Series Paper (for the scallop)
White card stock – used for the Fence
Mint Green card stock – used for the grassy hill
Beige and pink card stock – used for the flowers
Pink glitter card stock – used for XOXO script
Lawn Fawn – XOXO Scripty Die
Mama Elephant All Prettied Up Die set
My Favorite Things Fence Die

Lala Land Love to Garden Die Set
3M Scotch Foam Adhesive
Tombow mono-multi liquid adhesive
Stampin Up – Glue Dots
I die-cut the fence and the grassy hills border using dies from My Favorite Things. I think both of these dies will be a staple for my card-making projects. The fence die leaves an impression on the die-cut and looks a little bit more realistic. I also love my newly acquired Mama Elephant, All Prettied Up die-set. I have used them quite a bit and it’s becoming my favorite die. I wanted Brentwood to look like he is popping out of the box – special delivery style!
I hope you all had a great Christmas holiday and New Year celebration as much as I did and I look forward to a great, bright, happy, healthy new 2016!
